Half marathon start in May 2022

Next month’s Autoparts Stornoway Half Marathon & 10K is being expanded to include a kid’s 3k mini-marathon.

Introducing the junior event helps make the largest opening festival in the Western Isles even larger.

The Stornoway Running and Athletics Club-organised races will take place on Saturday, May 25.

The new mini-marathon will be from Stornoway Harbour Quay to the Castle Grounds and back.

There are five age categories: U9, U11, U13, U15 and U17. Children under eight must be accompanied by an adult.

The entry fee is £2, and medals are awarded to all the finishers.

There is still time to enter the half and 10k, which can be done online here.

The mini marathon entries can be submitted here or at registration on Friday, May 24, between 5 and 9 pm in the MA Macleod Memorial Hall.
